Description

Gothic master Edgar Allan Poe's complete works are collected in this multivolume set by Blackstone Audio. Here are his short stories, detective fiction, and poems in all their mysterious and macabre glory. Also included are Poe's literary reviews and editorial musings, comprising an often caustic analysis of the poetry, drama, and fiction of the period.

This collection includes Poe's famous stories "The Masque of the Red Death", "The Pit and the Pendulum", and "The Tell-Tale Heart". Poe's poetry features prominently in this collection, with well-known classics such as "The Raven", "Annabel Lee", and "Lenore" presented alongside lesser-known works like "Eulalie" and "The Conqueror Worm". Poe fans will be treated to his fearless and acerbic analysis of then-modern works, a practice earning him the reputation as a "tomahawk man" in artistic circles.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

44 hours and No table of contents

Any additional comments?

44 hours 49 minutes of audio and no table of contents. That's right. The speakers, Heyborne, Chase, Corren, Campbell and Gardner are all terrific. Blackstone Audio should supply a table of content.

Great audiobook! Just missing one thing....

The stories are classic, and the narrators do a great job. As others have commented, the one thing this audiobook is missing is the names of each literary work instead of just chapter numbers. It would be nice to be able to skip to specific stories.

The narrators failed to keep my attention. Boring.

The narrators failed to keep my attention. I became bored very quickly. Very slowly paced.

A Collection of Edgar Allan Poe

I have enjoyed reading Poe for many years. This collection of poems and stories had many that I had not yet heard.

Everything you ever wanted to hear and more!

This book is comprehensive, and you get all of Poe in one 44 hour shot. There is lot's to be recommended from gothic horror to humor and poetry. I loved his humor the best and his detective mystery's are the best. I did not know several latter writers credit Poe with influencing them, Melville, Doyle and Stevenson to mention a few. The narration is very good and worthwhile.
Some of his Critique are long and hard to listen to and some of his writings are long and wordy. but stick with it and you will be rewarded with some understanding of this genius.

Complete, for better and worse

A complete collection of Poe is unfortunately a better idea than it is a book. Everything is here, so if you are trying to get a "greatest hits" summary of classic Poetry and Tales they are here but you have to dig for them. Each entry mercifully has its own chapter but for every golden oldie and hidden gem are tedious short poems and stories that make no sense. Many of the narrators, Grover Gardener aside, don't seem to understand what they are reading either and seem like they are struggling just to make it to the end. If you want The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, etc., then go for a shorter collection. This is really intended for a Poe purist (and may be even a tad tedious for them).
